ceiling was officially hit on december 31st, but like last time the u.s. treasury is using extraordinary measures to get through about late february or early march. if congress doesn't act by then, the government risks not being able to pay some of its bills. republicans seem to think the debt ceiling is a useful tool to limit how much the government spends, but that is not what the debt ceiling law is supposed to do. it gives the u.s. treasury the flexibility to borrow money to pay the government's bills without going to congress to get approval every single time. it has nothing to do with spe spending or debt control. you might want it to be about spending control like i'd like to be in "people's" list of 50 most beautiful people. wishful thinking doesn't make it happen. they can use the debt ceiling as a hostage like they attempted to use the fiscal cliff as a hostage, to get something else done, something they haven't been able to use do using the normal democratic process because that process is broken. the fiscal cliff deal puts off dealing with mandatory spending cuts until march
